Granted I haven't been to SJF yet and probs wont but lets run down what we know after one week of Buffalo Bills training camp (based on media reports):
EJ Manuel is still a huge question mark. Then again Erik will probably always be a question mark until he stays healthy and plays in a playoff game (both of which I highly doubt ever happen).
The Bills lovvvve Jeff Tuel. Why is anyones god damn guess but is this guy really better than Thad Lewis (eek what a sad sentence)? Are these three clowns really the best available quarterbacks? Does Tuel have any chance of ever being a decent backup?
Marcell Dareus and Allan Branch are pieces of crap. Haven't these two morons know when training camp started since February? How are they not in good enough shape to pass a routine physical to be able to participate in camp? Everyone knows Dareus is a waste but shouldn't Branch be ready to step in when Mr Big Stuff gets suspended? Jeez.
Sam Watkins is talented. The guy will never live up to the 2 firsts the Bills needed to acquire him but at least he is showing what the Dougs saw when they drafted him (even if the highlight was a play where he was uncovered and he slipped before catching the ball).
The Bills are counting BIG TIME on Aaron Williams to be the new Jairus Byrd and to be the vocal leader on the defense. He got paid and he now needs to show he was worth it. I have reservations but anythings posssssibleeeee.
Match ups to watch still:
Searcy v Meeks v Duke
Bryce v Fred Jackson
Pears v Cyrus
Boobie v Summers
Graham v 7/11
The aforementioned "QBs"
Cordy Glenn v mystery illness (god help us all)
The Bills will probably still only win 7 games.

Yeah yeah I know, Sam Watkins had a nice one handed catch uncovered after slipping in a red zone drill today, NEAT! http://deadspin.com/bills-wr-sammy-watkins-trips-recovers-makes-terrific-1609620831?utm_campaign=socialflow_deadspin_twitter&utm_source=deadspin_twitter&utm_medium=socialflow
Buttt training camp is still boring, so lets take a look at the twitter follow count of all the "personalities" at WGR550 and see how they rank. (Granted I dont recommend following any of them [mostly because they blocked me] but I digress):
1. Jeremy White @jeremyWGR 37.8
2. Joe Buscaglia @joebuscaglia 27.6
3. Paul Hamilton @pham1717 27.3
4. John Murphy @johnmurphyshow 18.6
5. Mike chap Schopp @schopptalk 18.5
6. Howard Simon @hsimon62 17.9
7. Sal Cappaccio @salsports 17.4
8. Chris poodle Parker @bulldogwgr 13.4
9. Brian Koziol @brianwgr 10.7
10. Matthew Coller @matthewcoller 2154
11. Thom Cich @thomWGR 1248
To recap, a huge drop off from first to second, worst handle easily is Paul walruss Hamilton and best handle might be salsports albeit the most lame. Most dissapointing is Bulldog and most surprising is John Murphy.
They all suck

Another Bills training camp starts and another year of dashed hopes and dreams looms. Could the Bills be good enough to make the playoffs? Absolutely. Is anyone with half a brain predicting it? Absolutely not.
Since no one cares who will be in a battle to replace Marcell Dareus for the first 4 games errrr Im too lazy to break that shit down so instead Ill give some over/unders on random things for the Bills this training camp:
Aug 8, the day Erik James has his first knee injury. As we all know ol' brittle knee had 3( three!) knee injuries last year. So after most of camp and 2 preseason games will Manuel still be walking sans crutches.
2.5, the number of games the Bills will win out of their 5 preseason games. As we know the Bills started off on a tear last year ripping up their first two games only to finish 2-2. Can Douggie rally the troops to get above .500?
.5, significant injuries to real players in camp. With Kiko Alonso already donzo Im being overly optimistic there wont be another biggie. Are you really willing to bet the over? Jerk
2.5 plays Sammy Watkins makes that tricks me into thinking using 2 first round picks on a wide receiver was a smart idea.
1 number of quarters it takes to remind us the Hall of Fame game blows.
6.5 the number of reports with the words "offense struggled" during camp
.5 the number of coordinators fired before the season starts. Think this is preposterous? This is the Bills might I remind you.
4.5 the number of times I reference Doug Marrone's trusted "dissapointment pamphlet".
2 the number of Jerry Sullivan columns mentioning Mario Williams high salary.
38 boring reports Joe Buscaglia provides live from St John Fisher.
6.5 total wins for the season. I have the Bills at 7-9

Quite clearly Lebron James hated being hated. He didnt like being the heel, the villain the bad guy. He got his rocks off in Miami, won some titles and is now goin back to C-town.
The decision blew up in his face. Clearly Lebron didnt anticipate the backlash from the debacle that was the decision. In this letter he wrote he sounds contrite and is saying all the right things.
Where was this perfect PR four years ago. Lebron couldnt have handled this any better and handled the last decision any worse.
The question now is will the Cavs make a move for Kevin Love? No the bigger question is will Lebron be beloved again? Id say instantly he will be loved again except maybe in Miami.
Cleveland should feel blessed today and verrrrry lucky.
WTF Pat Kane
